    Except possibly for high speed downhill situations, wouldn't the horse outperform the bike in most riding situations?

    Sometimes if I'm climbing a big, steep hill, I'd gladly trade in my granny gear for a willing horse

    A bicycle will obviously make human travel far more efficient. So would a horse. Now...here's the clincher...how about making a bicycle for a horse. Then ride the horse on the bicycle. Lance wouldn't have a chance against you!

    The horse would probably get pissed off because the saddle pinches his stuff

    Humans actually have greater endurance than horses, typically.
    Given a long enough race between a horse and a human, the human should win.
    It might require fast walking speeds and several hundred miles, but still.
